SunSun Cannister

So Im pretty set on this Amazon.com : SunSun Hw302 264GPH Pro Canister Filter Kit : Pet Supplies

I was planning on adding the filter pack and was curious if i should also add the Seachem Purigen 100ml...

Thanks!

Okay sweet, and I was recommend to get corse finger sponges, fine filter floss, and bio media...can anyone help me find where to buy these and tell me if its really what I should get? I assume you just place these in the sunsun or is there a special place inside the canister they need to go?

Even though I don't personally have a sun sun is do the filter floss first, the sponges next, and then bio media and then water polisher/carbon or whatever stuff u want to add after

What do you mean by first second and third. Im just confused. How do these go into the cannister? Don't they all go in at once?

The SunSun canister that you linked to is a 3-stage canister filter. This means that it has 3 trays. You can put your stuff in different trays.
